Brno Girl Scout

The 1st of May is May Day, or Labour Day, and it is a public holiday here in Czechland.  Last week there was demonstration and march organised by the DSSS Workers' Party which is a Neo-Nazi, far-right party here in Czech Republic.

DSSS is Dělnická strana sociální spravedlnosti which basically translates to the Workers' Party of Social Justice.  They are an anti-EU, anti-Nato, anti-USA, pro-Russia political party that is not represented in any legislative body.  They usually take less than 1% of the vote.

The demonstration last week was about 150 people supporting the far-right.  But there were around 300 counter demonstrators who showed up.

One of the opponents was a 16 year-old girl scout named Lucie Myslíková.  The photo of her standing up to a skin head went viral.  We should all be so very proud of this young lady.

Here's a short video I found out on YouTube that has some footage from the day.  At 21 seconds in you can catch a quick glimpse of her standing her ground with him.
